A story of a disgruntled mother in a far off place, and an offbeat daughter whose imagination takes her to places even farther.
Meet Aimee – an overworked junior partner at a prestigious law firm in Manila, Philippines. Nine years later, after one storybook romance and four back-to-back flights, we find her in the small-of-mind but big-in-spirit town of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. She’s still overworked, but now as a serial-full-timer and mother to her only child, Melodie – an intelligent and eccentric seven-year-old whose big personality is only rivaled by her even bigger imagination.
Join them and a cast of unlikely characters, all just as confused and lost, as they stumble blindly for twelve consecutive hours through the beautifully disastrous comedy of life.
